CWA vegan scones in demand at festival

Vegan scones made by the Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association were in demand at the Alive Plant Based Festival which took place in Gosford on March 30.

The association created the vegan scone to match the festival's ethos of promoting plant-based alternative food and products created by local makers from across the region.

"We'd like to say a huge thanks to everyone who supported us at Alive Plant-Based Festival.

"We were absolutely astounded by the love and support we received from the vegan community.

"By 1pm, we were sold out of scones and couldn't be more grateful," said branch president Ms Jane Bowtell.

The branch also produced handmade craft and household items made from recycled materials.

"As a branch, we are always looking at ways to reduce our waste," Ms Bowtell said.

"Among our endeavours are our handmade reusable produce bags, reusable dishcloths and crocheted string bags.

"The produce bags are all made from recycled curtains and come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

"They are a perfect alternative to the plastic ones at the supermarket and can even double as washing bags for your delicates.

"The dishcloths are hand-knitted by our members from strong cotton and will last wash after wash.

"The string bags are hand-crocheted from cotton by our very talented member Dinah.

"They are perfect for the beach, markets, festivals or just everyday use," Ms Bowtell said.

Other repurposed and reusable items branch members created for the festival included a range of pincushions and "kitchen chickens", a plant-based pest repellent created to keep household pests out of food storage areas.

According to Ms Bowtell, the members enjoyed the experience so much that the branch will be returning to the festival for a second time in September.

"We will be back in September, bigger and better than ever," Ms Bowtell said.
